NBA players face $1 million fine for using Facebook or Twitter during lockout

Salary negotiations, salary caps, revenue sharing and just about every other negotiation has come to a standstill today between the NBA and its players. Since the expiration of the current collective bargaining agreement last night between the owners and players, the league has barred any interaction between them through Facebook or Twitter until a new contract is reached.

Should the players and the owners communicate via social media tools, the offender is not only facing a million dollar fine from the league, but the owner's eligibility to participate in draft picks for the new season could also be yanked. This could be devastating to a team that is trying to rebuild for a run at the national title.
